Made with coconut milk, fresh strawberries and stevia, these coconut milk strawberry popsicles taste almost like a strawberry creamsicle. Except they’re healthier. And with our special way of making them in layers, they’re really pretty, too.
Summer is officially in full swing, which means one thing – popsicles!
These brightly colored, icy treats are the perfect way to cool down on a hot day.
And this summer, we’re shaking things up with a new twist on an old favorite: homemade coconut milk strawberry popsicles.
Sweet, creamy and relatively healthy, these popsicles are perfect for any occasion. (But I especially love serving them at cookouts).
So grab your blender and get ready to whip up a batch of these delicious treats!

- coconut milk – 14.5-ounce can full fat coconut milk. You can use a skinnier version if you want to, but the popsicles will not be as creamy.
- fruit – 16-ounce package fresh strawberries. Frozen strawberries will also work, but you’ll want to thaw them first.
- sweetener – 3 Tablespoons stevia
- crumbles – 1 cup Graham cracker crumbles. I bought them already crumbled, but you could also use a rolling pin to crush whole graham crackers.
- For a different flavor, replace the strawberries with raspberries or blackberries.
- The graham cracker crumbles can be substituted for the cookie of your choice. Oreos come to mind as another tasty option.
- For a healthier version, omit the graham cracker crumbles altogether.
You will need a popsicle mold and popsicle sticks to make popsicles. This silicone one* (from Amazon) makes getting the popsicles out easier.
Fortunately, they aren’t very expensive.
And you can use the mold over again. Which you will definitely want to do after you try these!
How to make coconut milk strawberry popsicles
This recipe makes about 10 popsicles
Wash the strawberries and remove the hulls. (I like to use a hull-remover for this. It’s so easy once you get the hang of it).
Make the strawberry puree
Add the strawberries to a food processor along with 1 Tablespoon of stevia.
Blend until smooth. Set aside.
Sweeten the coconut milk
Pour a can of coconut milk into a bowl.
If it is hard on the top, put all of it in a bullet or mini food processor and process it until it is creamy. This should only take a few seconds.
Then stir in 2 Tablespoons of stevia.
Make the popsicles
1. Spoon strawberry puree into the popsicle mold. 2. Add coconut milk.
To make the popsicles, pour 2 Tablespoons of the strawberry pure into the popsicle molds.
Then add 2 Tablespoons of coconut milk to each of them.
Repeat this process of 2 Tablespoons strawberry puree and 2 Tablespoons of coconut milk until the molds are almost full.
Push a popsicle stick about halfway down into each mold.
Finally, sprinkle some graham cracker crumbles over the top of each mold.
Freeze for 4 to 5 hours or until the popsicles are frozen solid.
Keep the popsicles in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
Then run warm tap water over the outside of the mold for about 20 seconds to loosen them.
Gently pull the popsicles out and they are ready to eat.
How long can popsicles stay in the freezer?
These popsicles will keep for up to a month in the freezer.
